After a week or two of sunny days it felt great to get some rain, and tonight’s showers were true summer rain showers. They rolled in while the sun was still out and poured almost directly down for about 20-30 minutes. Then the storm cleared and Cooper and I got to get out for a walk. Everything smelled bright and fresh, as if the day had been washed away. I love beautiful sunny days as much as anyone, but the occasional hard rain is a welcome change. A good rain adds balance, something I could use more of in my life.
